gamigo discontinues development for Grimlands, internationalization of Fiesta Online

Hamburg, 22nd March, 2013 - gamigo AG has developed very positively in the past months. gamigo AG's new strategy, to focus more in the future, shows initial great success.

Development halt for Grimlands

The intensified focus on publishing and distribution and reduction of high-risk development projects has been pushed further forward. With this in mind the decision has been made not to proceed with the development of the MMORPG, Grimlands. The game still requires substantial additional funds to be brought to completion. Even other games in the "development pipeline" are to be critically assessed anew according to opportunities and risks.

Internationalization

Things continue to improve for the successful fantasy MMORPG, Fiesta Online. Fiesta continues on an internationalization course shortly after the acquisition of the US license. After the planned launch of an Italian language version marketing will be expanded to Mexico (Spanish language version) and Canada (English and French language version).

The Turkish language version has been discontinued for Last Chaos. The German, Spanish, Italian, and French markets are moving evermore into focus.

Acquisition candidates searched for in the MMO market

A Family and Friends programme has been issued to finance further, especially inorganic, growth as well as to strengthen the structure of the balance sheet. gamigo AG continues to actively search the MMOG market for acquisition candidates.
